French woman living in Spain confidences
Jaqueline, Norman of 66 years old, lives in Spain since 24 years and won’t move. If the fisrst reason to leave France was the unemployment of his son, the reason to stay is different “the quality of life”. In 1989 she lived in Nime (South of France town) with her two sons-18 and 12 years old. She had problems to find job because she hadn’t a good health and the rent was expensive. She decided to come to Spain when she realized she was able to buy two houses there by loan and that the cost of the loan was refunded by the renting. Her two sons found good job in Spain and won’t ever leave this country also. When she came to Spain, she didn’t speak Spanish, not a word. Now she is bilingual and work for real Estates when they need a translator.
For Jaqueline “with €10 in France you just can eat dish of the day with a glass of water, in Spain, for the same price, you have starter, dish, desert and wine as much as you like!” Owner, private means, good job, sunny and high cultural wealth with affordable prices, good health services, low tax, without hesitation Jaqueline told us “I will never go back
to live in France”.
